review and swatches: L'oreal color riche L'extraordinaire liquid lipstick

After yesterday's somewhat scathing review of Rimmel's Apocalips Lip Lacquer, I thought I'd dedicate the next couple of posts to the brands that offer lip lacquer products and get. It. Right.

   Up first, L'oreal Paris have recently released the L'extraordinaire liquid lipstick, in a decent selection of shades, from brights to naturals. They claim the product is a slam dunk for your pouty needs: the coverage of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss and the hydration of a balm. Bold claim, babes. Well, is it as as extraordinary as it sounds?

   Actually, yes. I got a peachy nude shade, Nude Vibrato (600). First impressions were good. Sturdy gold twist-open packaging that shows the shade of the product. A whiff of chemically raspberry- not too bad, certainly not sickening. A slanted, soft and flexible applicator that get's you a good sweep of colour in a few easy strokes. And the formula didn't let it down either.

  It is, as L'oreal states, glossy. It is intensely pigmented, pretty much opaque. It feels absolutely luscious on the lips. I wouldn't say it feels light, but it is very balmy and not sticky at all, and manages to stay hydrating throughout wear, which is where a lot of lip products fail. It doesn't feather or bleed. The colour applies evenly and without streaks.

It's a million times better than its Rimmel forerunner, and at £8.99 in most dugstores and online, it's pretty purse friendly to boot. I'm happy to recommend it. Good job, L'oreal.

Any of you tried it? What did you think? Let me know, bro x
